Speaker Fernando Eriksson

Fernando graduated from the University of Granada Spain in 2007. As part of his training he spent one year at the University of Oslo, Norway. He then worked for three years as general practitioner in Gran Canaria where he discovered his passion for periodontics and implant dentistry. This drove him to take a three full time course at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute in London.

He later obtained membership in periodontics with the Royal Surgeons of Edinburgh and was recognised as a specialist in periodontics by the GDC. He joined the South Coast Team in 2013. He has carried out research in the field of bone regeneration.
